Below the ads and above the organic listings on the first page of Google, you will see 3 map listings. There used to be 10 spots but now it’s only 3 – meaning the competition is a lot tougher. Firstly you must make sure your ‘Google My Business’ profile is optimized properly for your chosen keywords. Secondly you should build plenty of high quality citations. Citations are listings of your business name, address and phone number on directory sites across the internet. These should be a combination of local and also national directories. When serving up a map result, Google takes into consideration; relevance of the business, optimization of the business account, number and quality of reviews, and of course distance from the person searching.
